Fraud

Three people have been arrested in connection with a police recruitment scam. (Watch)

In the Volta Region, three people are being held by police for allegedly indulging in recruitment fraud in the ongoing security recruiting.


Amega Bernard, who is 18 years old, Godson Wemegah, who is 18 years old, and Godsway Adzika, who is 21 years old, were arrested in Akatsi by the Volta Regional Police Command on September 14, 2021.


Their arrest "follows a false Facebook publication purportedly published by the Volta Regional Police Commander, DCOP Mr. Edward Oduro Kwanteng, advertising to aid potential applicants to be recruited into the Ghana Police Service," according to a police statement.

According to preliminary police investigations, several victims have paid varying sums of money to the scammers in the hopes of being favored in the ongoing scheme.


The statement, written by DSP Effia Tenge, Head of Public Affairs at the Volta Regional Police Command, warned the public not to fall for such a scam.


"The command wishes to stress that it is not responsible for recruiting individuals into the service; as a result, desperate applicants should be aware of protocol allocations being given elsewhere."


In the last few weeks, a total of five people have been arrested for engaging in such fraudulent activity.


Persons who have been victims are also being urged to report to the command to aid in the investigation and prosecution.
